I ordered my .22 Talon SS ser# BS0046x from Yvette on the spot at the 2002 SHOT Show. It’s always been a tack driver and has been stock until recently with the addition of TT shroud, which is deadly quiet. The loudest part of the gun is now the orignal style valve, so my TSS definitely needs some TTT TLC (power mod, o-ring mod, hammer slap mod).
Scope is a BSA 4-14X44AO/IR Mil-Dot which came out that year.
I’d be curious to hear from any other TSS owners with a ser # under 500 ;).December 28, 2011 at 1:23 am #147417riffraffParticipant
Neither of my frames even have a serial #.
If they did, I don’t know where they were or what happened to them.January 30, 2012 at 11:08 pm #149638
After some TAG upgrades:
TT Tank with tuned, polished, power & o-ring modded valve
TT custom brass hammer
TT fluted breech with hammer slap mod & 90 durometer o-rings
WokGard 15 with Ergo Suregrip
WalkonKing custom trigger shoe
I finally ditched the crappy AF bipod and picked up a lightly used Caldwell bipod from member mywifeboughtit in the For Sale section. For the ultimate bipod frame adapter, I contacted Marmot_Militia for one of his bipod adapters and am eagerly awaiting its arrival.
The first time I shot it with the new tank & valve from Tony, I giggled out loud at how powerful yet quiet it is. When it comes to tuning, Tony is the man!
The aesthetic, ergonomic, & handling upgrades of the TTTA, WokGard15, WokButt, and Walkon_King custom trigger shoe turned my stock Talon SS into a great handling rifle that is more comfortable to shoot. The design, machining, fit & finish of all of the custom parts by Adam aka Walkon_King are of the highest quality and match the finish of the Airforce factory anodizing. Tony’s TTTA has been a long time in the making based on a conversation I had with him, but it’s finally here and it came out awesome.
Adam, Jim and Tony not only make great custom parts, but they’re all a pleasure to do business with.
The end result is a deadly accurate, backyard & neighborhood friendly, extremely quiet rifle that has been optimized for pesting. My Talon SS is now worthy of better optics and that will be remedied soon.January 31, 2012 at 2:55 am #149648wolfemanParticipant
Incredible rifle ballistic. Your before and after pictures are awesome. Great job…….January 31, 2012 at 5:58 am #149655hootParticipant
Cover that QD fitting with a grease zerk nipple, or a push cap nut, either available at an automotive store, or a hardware store.
They are simply supple silicone push on caps that are held in place by friction. They come in all colors and dress up that wide open QD male fitting.
If you can’t find one in black, simply go over it with a permanent black marker and it will stay black and match up with everything else you have going on.
And…it even serves a purpose, keeping particles out of your air tank.

Thanks wolfeman! Now I have the itch for a .25 Condor build.quote Hoot:
Will do Hoot, thanks for the info. Covering nipples is counterintuitive.February 3, 2012 at 3:59 am #149793benneeb0yParticipant

Got my nipple covered 😉 $7 for a bunch of Holly vacuum hose caps from Amazon.com.December 11, 2016 at 11:44 pm #263009
Reviving this old thread. I started shooting my TSS again recently after a hiatus and installed a Sound-Loc system to take the sound down another notch. Works very well with my TT 6″ LDC. I had to remove the old style delrin bushings with a rubber mallet. I also vented the frame under the front handguard.December 11, 2016 at 11:55 pm #263010anthony266Moderator
Great job….on an old thread….looks great!

Thanks Tony! I still smile every time I shoot it. Your mods really transformed this gun and turned it into a stealthy tack driver. :4:
